    I have an asp:Panel that contains about 10 TextBox fields inside of it.  I set up a RadInputManager to ensure that the Textboxes are not empty, however, one of the TextBoxes is not required, but because it is wrapped in a asp:Panel, it thinks it needs to be validated.  Is there a way to override the validation?

    Hello Saied,

    You could try to add the RadInputManager control into the asp:Panel control. Then you could add all TextBox controls which need validation into the RadInputManager's TargetControls collection:

    <asp:Panel runat="server" ID="panel">
      <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
      <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
      <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox3" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
      <telerik:RadInputManager ID="RadInputManager1" runat="server">
        <telerik:TextBoxSetting InitializeOnClient="true"
           BehaviorID="TextBoxBehavior1" EmptyMessage="type here" Validation-
           <telerik:TargetInput ControlID="TextBox1" />
           <telerik:TargetInput ControlID="TextBox2" />

    Additionally I am sending you a simple example that illustrates how to achieve the desired functionality.
    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
